Dosage & Preparation

Coconut oil can be used very sparingly, 1 tsp. or just a pinch is usually enough. Coconut oil begins to melt at about 28 °C and can be stored at room temperature for baking and frying. This gives coconut oil a spreadable almost liquid consistency, making it extremely easy to measure out. When frying, organic coconut oil remains stable up to 200 °C. Heating the oil above 200 °C can have an adverse effect on the quality of the oil and should be avoided. 

Our tip

Unlike conventional oils, coconut oil gives dishes a somewhat exotic flavour. Coconut oil is not only for baking and frying,it can also be used to enhance fresh salads or as an alternative to butter and margarine on bread.

General information about organic coconut oil

The nutritional benefits and healing properties of coconut oil have been know to the peoples of the South Pacific for thousands of years. Thanks to these properties, cold-pressed organic coconut oil is also becoming a vital part of western cuisine.

Coconut oil is one of the most natural oils and can be distinguished by its extremely high content of amino acids. Thanks to its antioxidant properties and readily available fatty acids, organic coconut oil is easily well and provides long-lasting energy.

The oil extracted from the coconut has an above-average concentration of saturated fatty acids, which consist of 90% medium-chain fatty acids. The extremely high lauric acid content also stands out. Lauric acid makes coconut oil ideal for frying and cooking. Chemical stability, heat resistance up to 200 °C and a long shelf life ensure that no unhealthy trans fats arise when coconut oil is used for cooking.

Coconut oil can even be used as a natural cosmetic to support a pure complexion.

foodspring organic coconut oil is a natural handmade product made from sun-ripened coconuts. Immediately after being picked, the coconuts are transferred to the oil mill for processing. The coconut meat is then removed lovingly by hand and gently cold-pressed. The result is a first-class organic coconut oil in raw food quality, with an unmistakable crystal clear colour, gentle aromatic scent and mild coconut flavour.

The coconuts for our raw organic coconut oil grow on 100% organic and sustainable palm trees to meet strict EU directives. So foodspring's organic coconut oil is a completely natural product.

The extraordinary taste and the health benefits of coconut oil make it a real all-rounder for healthy cooking and low-calorie diets. And vegans, or anyone who suffers from an intolerance to gluten, lactose or soya, can enrich their diet with organic coconut oil.

The effects of organic coconut oil

Thanks to an abundance of fine ingredients, mild scented coconut oil is by far the most versatile coconut product. High-quality coconut oil can have a wide range of positive effects on both your internal and external wellbeing like almost no other product.

Organic coconut oil strengthens and tones the entire body. Furthermore, the organic coconut oil  is better tolerated than other dietary fats, like butter and margarine. While these primarily contain long-chain fatty acids, coconut oil is characterised by its medium-chain fatty acid content. Medium-chain fatty acids can be metabolised better. They provide us with optimised usable energy that lasts longer.

So-called medium-chain triglycerides are absorbed by the liver, digested with lightning speed and converted into ketones. These chemical compounds supply the brain with energy as quickly as possible and keep blood sugar levels constant. Your appetite is also reduced and you feel fuller - this benefits fat reduction.

Combined with exercise, our body breaks down excess fat deposits quickly and effectively. Any reduction of body fat decreases the risk of cardiovascular disease and contributes to your overall health.

It is perfect for both men and women and can replace any cream in the bathroom: It hydrates the skin without leaving a greasy film behind and contributes to a beautiful complexion thanks to its antibacterial properties. In Ayurveda, organic coconut oil has been used as mouthwash, an integral part of oral hygiene, for centuries.

Mixed with water, organic coconut oil can also remove waterproof make-up without leaving any residue and as a deep conditioner it gives the hair new strength and shine.

Positive side effect: Even high-quality organic coconut oil in raw food quality is cheaper than many creams in the long run. Since it melts at about 26 °C, it melts when applied to the body so that even just a small amount can cover a large area. A 100% natural product for the bathroom.


Getting the most out of organic coconut oil

As it comes, in a smoothie or in a soup: Coconut oil enriches any dish with its fine flavour. With a smoke point of 200 °C, coconut oil loses no flavour or nutritional value. That's why cold-pressed coconut oil is safe to use both for hot and cold dishes.

With a subtle exotic aroma and a mild taste, coconut oil is not only healthy, it is also a perfect substitute for conventional cooking fats like butter and olive oil.

Make Asian dishes with peanut butter extra creamy with a tablespoon of coconut oil. Organic coconut oil even adds a touch of the exotic to sandwiches when used as a spread and steaks when used in place of herb butter.

If you need a real energy boost in the morning, before a workout or for the afternoon slump, add a splash of cold-pressed organic coconut oil to your coffee instead of milk. Just one teaspoon in a cup of Bulletproof coffee is enough for an exceptional energy boost.

As the medium-chain fatty acids in organic coconut oil are quickly utilised by the body but have a long-lasting effect, you get twice the benefit: On the one hand they give you quick energy for a good start to the day and on the other hand they help you feel fuller for longer.



Buying organic coconut oil online – what you need to look out for

Like all fats and oils, there are significant differences in quality when it comes to coconut oil. The selection of raw materials, the manufacturing processes and possible additives all affect the quality of the final product. That's why you should look out for high-quality, cold-pressed coconut oil.

Organic quality, handmade and immediate processing of the coconut are important indications of a first-class organic coconut oil. After careful raw material sourcing, gently cold-pressing the coconut meat ensures an optimised nutrient content is retained.

No chemico-physical processes should be used to bleach, cure, refine or deodorise the product. Only in this way can a pure and natural coconut oil in top organic quality be achieved.

Coconut oil is crystal clear and has an aromatic, unobtrusive coconut scent. Additives of any kind, like preservatives and emulsifiers, reduce the value of the coconut oil.
